“Swimmers’ cupping” captures the spotlight at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo

This is not the first time the foreign spots have been seen, as they have previously been seen on the backs of Japanese swimmers Akira Namba and Kyle Chalmers of Australia, during previous sessions of the Olympic Games.

And according to the British newspaper, The Independent, these spots were seen in 2016, on the back of gold medalist Michael Philip, the American gymnast, Alex Nador.

These brands are formed from cupping, an ancient remedy with roots in the cultures of the Middle East and Asia.

According to many, “cupping” has many health benefits, such as improving blood circulation, relieving muscle pain, and promoting cell repair, despite the lack of scientific research that addresses this method of treatment.
